What Counts

Posted: 18 May 2009 02:14 AM PDT


A reporter once asked Mohammed Ali how many sit-ups could he do. His reply?

"I don’t count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting. When I feel pain, that’s when I start counting, because that’s when it really counts."

Pain drives you to get better at X.

Kobe Bryant didn't spend his childhood playing against other 12-year-olds; he forced himself to play against his father's professional teammates.

Gaining proficiency at something is like building freakish muscles:

  • The more you stress yourself, the stronger you become at it.

Likewise, the less you stress yourself, the weaker you become at it.

Seek pain.

Back to my article

Most people are wanting to do something very comfortable in life. The easier the better. Put away all the risk and do what every people wish to do. And the result will be very expected, they become just like every other people. Just an easy example, everybody wants to work with the government today. It does not happened back 10 or 20 years ago where everybody want to work in the private sector.

Everybody wants to become an engineer during my time (including me). And very few people want to be in the bio/plantation/education. But as you can see now, engineering market is saturated, results in wages becoming very average (even the studies are much harder) and you need to perform very well or else, wait for the next recession and off you go. Back in form 5, at my time nobody wants to become a teacher. Only those who not perform well in SPM will then get a teaching course when they applied UPU. Some of my friends are very frustrated and upset when she got that course at UPSI, even she was very shy to tell others. But what happened today, every body are applying for KPLI and DPLI. Can you predict what will happened tomorrow?

The best is to get out of the comfort zone.
Get a greater degree in life, seek for more pain cause that is what people would not want to do.

"Do what people won't today, so that you can live the life later that people can't."

Putrajaya Mosque (Happy Labour Day)

First of all Happy Labour Day to all workers around the world (even though you are not really a labour). You all have made a huge contribution on transforming the world.
1st May was a public holiday all over the county. So, I took this opportunity to perform the Friday prayer at Putrajaya Mosque. It was my second time performing my friday prayer inside the mosque, but this time together with my father-in-law and my brother-in-law. Walking about 5 minutes from the parking with an extremely hot weather and entering the mosque with an air-conditioning.

Finish the prayer, there's a bunch of people were crowding in one side of the exit. It was the former prime minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. I have a few times met him, especially in MMU, when he pays a visit after his retirement, during my convocation and some functions. I was grateful to shake his hand at that moment. He was a strong leader who worked very hard to transform the country, and even the Putrajaya City is also one of his plan during his time as a prime minister.

A few moment before leaving the building, suddenly a guy come and whisper at me, saying.. "Laaa... ingatkan imam besar mana, imam besar hadhari rupanya..".
In my mind, there are two things.
1. Tun never proposed the idea of Islam Hadhari.
2. As I said earlier, he is the one who work on the Putrajaya City, and even the Putrajaya Mosque was also under his project.
Why do these kind of people never thankful or appreciate the person who actually create the idea of the place?
Or if he don't like the idea of Putrajaya, why the hell he was there in the first place?
